I project I will be setting my sights on soon will involve a Hogwarts student from a Greek immegrant family. Being a first generation child, I alread have some ideas of what a struggle it can be to balance the old country and home, while assimilating to the culture around you.

But I am not Greek, and I am by no means British, so that is why I started this thread. The main character I'm working on came to England when she was four, so I assume she's fairly assimilated to British culture by now. But she probably has a very traditional Greek homelife; her family probably even speaks Greek at home.

So any cultural or language tidbits you think are important, or even if your first generation yourself and want to write some of your own life experience, feel free to post.

In the meantime, I write, and hope I get it right!
